In today's world, it seems everywhere we go we see large chains and franchise stores or restaurants surrounding us. In Canada (and surely the States too), whenever my husband and I take a ride across the province of Ontario to discover new towns, they just all look the same . Practically the same anyway.

I see them on babies, kids and adults--although I have to say, the baby and kids hats are way cuter! I went through a knitting phase a few years ago, but never quite graduated from scarves, so I found an online tutorial to bone up on my knitting skills so that I can attempt one of these absolutely adorable animal knit...

I was admittedly skeptical about participating in my first local crafts festival this fall. It is already a notoriously busy time of year, and I wasn’t sure how much work a local crafts festival might entail.

Well, it took a lot of work in the end. But it was totally worth it.
